I just checked out the amiga and mac kernel images and they do need fixing
(according to objdump -p, I don't have Amiboot). So, I guess Roman's patch
wasn't applied?

It would be good to see the patch tested more widely if that would help
get it into CVS. I've only tested the patch with binutils-2.15 (gcc 3.3.4
and 3.4.1) and it worked fine. It would be nice if it also fixed kernels
built with binutils-2.14.
